I woke up this morning feeling a bit naked. No one knew this blog existed until yesterday. After sharing my blog with my friend, she asked me if she could post it on her Facebook. I agreed (after a bottle of wine)…and then with one click my story and soul was out there for all of FaceBook to see…YIKES. I am always willing and open to share my story, but putting it out there in such a way scared me to death. What will people think? Will they laugh at this? Will they think it is silly? And as I woke up this morning and saw everyone’s loving comments, I suddenly realized this is just another step in my journey. I live my life free and out in the open now…who cares if someone reads it and thinks it is silly or bland. I will just unfriend them 🙂 This is my story and I am no longer ashamed of it. I am not ashamed of who I am or where I have been. Maybe my story will help someone else one day…that is my hope – to pay it forward. So if my blog is the vehicle for that to happen then it is worth fearing the critics and streaking naked through the Facebook newsfeed.
